3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

3 Horse Ranch Vineyards In 2003, Gary and Martha Cunningham broke ground in the foothills above Eagle, Idaho, planting historic Vitis Vinifera rootstock in Idaho’s fertile organic soil. Some of this rootstock traces its heritage to the 17th century Côtes du Rhône wine region in the southern Rhone Valley of France. Part of the newly formed Snake River Valley American Viticultural Area, 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards brings together a unique blend of soil, climate and care to produce fruit of exceptional quality.
